Technical Specifications

Take a look under the hood and get the details on Sophos Email’s award-winning features, including a range of “how it works” videos, giving you all the information you need.

Setup and Management

Sophos Email works right out of the box. Compatible with Microsoft Office 365, Exchange, Google G Suite and many other providers, our default settings giving you instant protection for your business and mailboxes.

Microsoft and Google compatible
Sophos email works seamlessly with the following leading email service provider platforms to offer advanced email security:

  • Microsoft Exchange Online and Microsoft Office 365
  • Microsoft Exchange 2003 or later
  • G Suite from Google Cloud

Support is not limited to these platforms - a simple MX configuration is all that’s required. Contact sales to check if your platform is supported.

Email Security Features

Sophos Email filtering blocks 99% of unwanted email at the gateway and our anti-spam engine catches the rest. Live updates by SophosLabs power Sophos Email filtering, ensuring you’re protected from the thousands of new threats sent every hour.

Live threat updates stop the latest attacks

Anti-malware engines that update hourly like Office 365 offer poor detection rates and will miss many of the thousands of new threats found every hour by SophosLabs. That’s why Sophos Email provides live updates to protect against the latest threats.

Business Continuity

When your email server experiences an outage, when there is a power failure, or there’s a disruption to a cloud-based service, Sophos Email provides the email continuity you need.

Spooling ensures no mail is ever lost
In the event of a disruption to your Microsoft or Google Cloud email service the recipient’s emails are automatically queued with Sophos Email, then delivered once service is restored – with a retry period of five days.
